Goose Island Root Beer
From Chicago IL, Goose Island produces an impressive line of craft beer & soda. "Chicago Style" root beer, as stated on the bottle.
12oz brown glass bottle, clear plastic label with a nice design and bottle cap to match. 180 calories and 43 grams of sugar. Sweetened with cane sugar, no specific flavorings listed.
Fairly dark in color with a pretty good head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is root spiciness, vanilla & wintergreen. Flavor is a great balance of complex root flavors, licorice, and creamy vanilla. Finish is a soft trail of wintergreen. Mouthfeel is sharp, yet creamy and smooth with a medium body and medium carbonation.
Delicious flavors, awesome mouthfeel, and high drinkability
make it an absolute star in my book!
